Hello

im making a software for my company and i need to read the frame content (wich are from other domains) and assign them to a var. Im using TWebBrowser component since it interpret js code, but im getting "access is denied" error due to cross domain security. How can i bypass it? and if its not possible is there any component wich will allow me to read the frame content (the component MUST execute js code).

Thanks a lot.

Elias
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject); 

var

  i: integer; 

begin 

  for i := 0 to (WebBrowser1.OleObject.Document.frames.Length - 1) do 

    if WebBrowser1.OleObject.Document.frames.item(i).document.queryCommandEnabled('Copy') then 

      ShowMessage('copy command is enabled for frame no.' + IntToStr(i));

end;

Is it login data from the frame window? For instance the data on the page you are trying to scrape is user login based? If not I just have my server call the frame url and grab the data via xmlhttp (ASP) or anoter way via some other server side language... if its login based, I think you are SOL.

no, its login based.
And yes i have tried to retrieve frames url through another browser request. But on this case i must get the code WITHOUT any additional requests.

IMPOSSIBLE with security. You can use XMLHTTP but you must pass authorization info in your request.
